For the past few months, I've been meeting with a small group of women from my (new-ish) church on Wednesday nights, which has been such a gift. We've been reading through the minor prophets and last week we discussed Habakkuk. If you would've asked me a couple weeks ago what Habakkuk was about, I would have not known, but now... it was so good. (Why does no one name their kid after this dude?)
Habakkuk was persistent and confident in seeking the Lord for answers and believed that God would show up and speak to him. He climbed his watchtower, away from distractions, and waited for an answer, and God responded.
Do we approach God with that same confidence and expectancy, knowing that He will answer? Do we quiet our hearts and minds enough to hear His reply? The Lord promises to show Himself to those who truly seek Him. Distractions will not go away on their own- we have to force them away. We have to create room for quiet in our lives, which in this age of busyness, is no easy task.
May we have eyes that look to our God expectantly and hearts that stand in awe of who He is.
